A Vision of a Flying Scroll
Again I lifted my eyes and saw, and behold, a flying a scroll!
And he said to me, "What do you see?" I answered, "I see a flying a scroll. Its length is twenty cubits, and its width ten cubits."
Then he said to me, "This is b the curse that goes out over the face of the whole land. For everyone who c steals shall be cleaned out according to what is on one side, and everyone who d swears falsely shall be cleaned out according to what is on the other side.
I will send it out, declares the Lord of hosts, and it shall enter the house of the thief, and the house of e him who swears falsely by my name. And f it shall remain in his house and g consume it, both timber and stones."

Therefore the anger of the Lord was kindled against this land, bringing upon it all the curses written in this book.
You shall not steal.
You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.
Be not rash with your mouth, nor let your heart be hasty to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven and you are on earth. Therefore let your words be few.
Do not devise evil in your hearts against one another, and love no false oath, for all these things I hate, declares the Lord.
You shall not swear by my name falsely, and so profane the name of your God: I am the Lord.
Then I will draw near to you for judgment. I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, against the adulterers, against those who swear falsely, against those who oppress the hired worker in his wages, the widow and the fatherless, against those who thrust aside the sojourner, and do not fear me, says the Lord of hosts.
The Lord 's curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the dwelling of the righteous.
And he shall break down the house, its stones and timber and all the plaster of the house, and he shall carry them out of the city to an unclean place.
